About the Course

Security has long been a consideration for DevOps engineers, with concepts like ‘Rugged DevOps’ having been common topics among practitioners. DevSecOps incorporates many of these best practices and more, enabling engineers and security staff to improve on DevOps cultures while also expanding the understanding of managers, directors, and corporate stakeholders.

This course offers access to a number of DevSecOps training assets designed by highly experienced practitioners and subject matter experts. These include interactive slides, instructor-led videos, and a practice exam simulator. Students can also enjoy FREE exam vouchers for the official DevSecOps Engineering (DSOE) examination.

Course Outline

This module introduces students to the course by outlining the course structure and lesson plan. It also refreshes students on the contents of the DevOps Foundation syllabus to put them in the correct frame of mind for expanding their knowledge of the methodology.

Students are also provided with a toolkit which includes:

  • Table of contents
  • DevOps Foundation reference sheet
  • DevSecOps reference sheet
  • Skills self-audit form
  • Glossary
  • Build your own glossary
  • Further resources
  • Diagram pack

The module concludes by taking students through the details of the DevSecOps Engineering (DSOE) examination. They are also given a list of further reading, which will aid them throughout the remainder of the course.

Module 1: An Introduction to DevSecOps Engineering
Learning Objectives

Following on from DevOps Foundation, this module looks at exactly what DevSecOps actually is. It compares the new methodology with classic DevOps, while also introducing the value of having a reliable and efficient security framework.

Benefits for Individuals

The DevOps community is continuing to grow, with certified practitioners often enjoying better career and networking opportunities than non-certified colleagues. Not only is security a hot topic within DevOps itself, but with developments like GDPR regularly drawing attention to its importance, security specialists are finding themselves in increasingly high demand.

This course is designed to prepare students to not only sit and pass the DevSecOps Engineering (DSOE) certification exam, but also to gain actionable insight which they can begin applying in real-world organizations. The Orbus Support Team is also fully qualified to answer questions on course content, equipping students with an invaluable resource as they progress through the syllabus.

Benefits for Organizations

Organizations that fail to fully incorporate modern security practices into development and operations can suffer substantial penalties to speed and efficiency. DevSecOps has practitioners apply automated security checks throughout all essential processes, highlighting potential issues early on so that they can be dealt with swiftly. This helps to prevent substantial problems arising just prior to or after the point of release, reducing the likelihood of either significant delays or flawed end products.

This course was developed by Good e-Learning, an award-winning online training provider and a Trusted Education Provider for the DevOps Institute. The course is fully accredited, and there are no prerequisites for sitting the DevSecOps Engineering (DSOE) certification exam. In other words, the course is ideal for both experienced DevOps practitioners who wish to update their knowledge and relative newcomers who want to start out with the latest version of the worldwide methodology.

This course is delivered by Good e-Learning who are the accredited training provider.
